Soulful plants for your home
masters have always had the belief that the proper placement of plants both inside and outside the home feed the soul by bringing health, wealth and prosperity to those who reside there. Some plants you should consider incorporating in your home include:
Palms come in a vast number of species and sizes. In terms of Feng Shui this classical tropical plant is known to attract positive energy into the home and is used to activate any missing or absent feng shui element in any given room, patio, or terrace.
For thousands of years bamboo has been renowned for bringing peace, love, health and luck into the home. Placement of bamboo to the east of the house focuses on family. However placing bamboo inside or out of the Southeast side of the home is the centre of wealth. Hardy perennial bamboo are available in Canada and the gift of lucky bamboo to a friend just may be the perfect housewarming!
Easy to grow indoors, rubber plants have air purifying round leaves that are thought to bring prosperity and money into the home. According to Feng Shui principles the ideal placement is around the front hall of your home.
Some Feng Shui masters believe snake plant is a negative energy plant, but others feel placing snake plant in the home or office will bring protective energy, shielding those in the home from negative Chi. Who knew? I say it’s an easy plant to grow and pretty bulletproof even for the worst indoor gardeners.
From the 1970’s on jade have found their way into several North American homes because they are both attractive and easy to care for. In the practice of Feng Shui it is the ideal plant to place in the home office as it attracts prosperity and money. Traditionally jades are placed near a home’s entrance as the plant welcomes success to anyone who enters.
